Studio Movie Grill in expansion mode

Feb 28, 2014

Studio Movie Grill (SMG) is in the midst of a major expansion initiative that has seen new locations open in Indianapolis, Columbus and Dallas in the last several months, with new theatres coming to Chatham, IL; Colleyville, TX; The Colony, TX, and Tyler, TX. More sites are currently in the works.

Since CEO Brian Schultz developed the concept in 1993 and established SMG in 2000, the company has grown to 16 locations and 158 screens in seven states.

"Studio Movie Grill is excited to be expanding and to be on the forefront of enormous growth in our segment of the movie exhibition industry," said Schultz. "We are always seeking new ways to provide the guest with a relaxing, no-rush experience in an appealing environment, coupled with the best technology, dedicated service and a continually evolving, eclectic menu."

SMG's newest Dallas-area location, SMG Colleyville, is set to open in April 2014. The 51,935-square-foot establishment will encompass eight screens and over 1,000 seats.

In The Colony, a 10-screen, 40,000-square-foot location, will bring the total number of SMG screens to 176. The theatre will seat 1,300 and is scheduled to open before year's end.

A complete remodeling and modernization will bring the existing Chatham 14 Theater in Chicago in line with today's SMG brand identity. With a completion date of May 2014, SMG Chatham will boast 13 screens and 1,400 seats, along with a modern lounge and lobby area and a contemporary menu.

SMG Tyler will add 10 screens. The 42,000-square-foot theatre will seat 1,400 and is scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2015.

The four new additions to the SMG family will offer casual dining and lounge areas for socializing before or after the main feature and dinner.
